ISTANBUL (Reuters) -- Galatasaray have signed Uruguay goalkeeper Fernando Muslera from Lazio in a five-year deal, the Turkish club said on Wednesday.

Muslera, who will receive two million euros ($2.8 million) annually from the Turkish side, is currently representing his country at the Copa America in Argentina.

On Saturday he saved a penalty from Argentine striker Carlos Tevez to knock the hosts out of the tournament and on Tuesday the 25-year-old helped Uruguay beat Peru 2-0 to reach the final where they will play either Paraguay or Venezuela.
